Birthday Bash

We celebrated Harper's sixth birthday party today. It was Minecraft-themed, as that is her current obsession. This year we tried to keep it simple with just a few close friends. I baked a couple of small chocolate cakes, stuck some Minecraft toys on top and called it a day. Then we let the good times roll at Water Works Park.   

Our party goers.

I think I get this same picture every year: Fiona and Zoe helping Harper blow her candles out. This year it was all staged because the wind was blowing too hard for candles.

Harper was onto us.

This was some sort of zombie run. Obviously.

Elijah has become quite the athlete recently.

He's the only kid who Brad knows who will watch football with him,
so he has an open invitation to hang out at our house.

Mimi was in excellent spirits... 

... unlike Birdie, who kept her unbroken streak of crying every time I look at her in tact.

Declan is Harper's new friend from school...

... as is Armando (whom Harper refers to as her "hugging friend"). 

I like to call this one "Collusion."

Serious business.

End of the day.

Thanks to all our dear friends who made it out for a very special SIX year old birthday!

Birthday Girl

Today our sweet Harper turns six years old. Tomorrow there will be cake and friends, but today we are enjoying her wacky, exuberant little self. 

Happy birthday, darling Harper. You are the heart of our family.
